Message:  In a short period of ten years Van Gogh painted approximately 900 paintings.

Vincent only sold one painting during his lifetime and only became famous after his death.

Van Gogh created his most famous work The Starry Night while staying in an asylum in Saint-Remy-de-Provence, France.

if you have not read LUST FOR LIFE by Irving Stone...do so...it's the life & times of Van Gogh...The movie from the book stars Kirk Douglas as Vincent...

I actually "touched" a Van Gogh painting at the St Louis Art Museum Van Gogh exhibit...WOW!

Vincent is one of my all-time heroes...Don Mclean pays such wonderful tribute to Van Gogh in his song...
